Reviews and Ratings

Carola Price rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Light red. Lots of red cherry, strawberry and minerals. Nice red fruit flavours and super easy drinking. For those of you who like Gamay this is a great replacement. Great patio sipper.
Drink now to 2 years.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Light brick in colour, lots of dried herbs and strawberry on the nose, as well as some raspberry and baking spice. Light-medium bodied, tight acidity with a bit of tannins. The flavour is tart cherry and strawberry. Pair with soft cheeses, bitter green salads, or lighter tomato based pasta dishes. Quite a good value wine.
Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

Pale in colour and body, with lively dark fruits flavours, bright acidity and a soft, smooth texture. Quite simple, but easy drinking and great value for the price.
Carla rated this wine as 81/100 with the following review:

Enjoyed a glass with a mixed plate of Greek food: salad Mousaka, souvlakis, saganaki & loukaniko. It all worked well together. The wine especially complimented the Greek rice mixed with tzatziki. Simple pleasures.
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Cherry red with violet shades. Soft red fruits with some plummy and spicy notes on the nose. Medium bodied with a nice robust mouth filling flavour, and a long finish.

Rouge cerise avec des tons violets. Nez de fruits rouges avec des touches de prunes et d'épices. Corps moyen avec une saveur robuste qui remplit la bouche et un fini allongé.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
